Nissan Project 370Z vs 1970 Datsun 240Z with RB26 Track Battle! - The Downshift Episode 54

Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate 370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain. On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines. The Downshift appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

The car has an LS1 with heads, cam, and FAST intake manifold putting down around 450 wheel horsepower! Best 1/8 mile time was 7.11 for the night.

It's the final day of Sema Week Powered by Nissan and we've concocted a matchup of cars that only a child would dream of! Jessi has the incredible Nissan 370Z Nismo. The keys to a mint 1970 Datsun 240z with an RB26 are in the hands of Finnegan. Sabounchi sweet talked his way into an 1100hp ethanol Nissan GTR. And Fred?

Will they fall to pieces while the highly engineered 370Z rockets past them? Or will Fred bring something so audacious that his asphalt loving co-hosts will be left in the dust? 2015 SEMA Week Powered by Nissan begins on Monday, November 30 on the Motor Trend Channel, with a whole week of videos dedicated to bringing you an exclusive inside look at SEMA, the premier automotive specialty products trade event in the world.
